Event description

Description

This one-day intensive provides non-technical business leaders with an understanding of cybercrime and why it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ for your company. You’ll explore real world examples to learn who the offenders are, their motivations and what strategies they could use to attack your business. This is an engaging, hands-on program; you’ll learn what practical plans and procedures to put in place at each stage of a company’s growth and role play scenarios for what to do when you’re hit.

Outcomes:

  • Learn who is behind the threats. Consider why your company would be targeted and get an insight into the emergence of a new global industry.
  • Learn what news ways of working (remote teams, bring your own device etc) and the behaviours of millennials mean for cybersecurity.
  • Consider if you have the right team and processes in place. Ensure your development environment and IP is protected and minimise the risk of losing data. Develop a plan to evolve your security procedures as your company grows and what is practical to put in place at your stage of business.
  • Develop an incident response plan to react to different types of cyber attacks (Ransomware, DDOS, fraud, identity theft, compromised data etc) and how to contain the blast radius when you’re hit.
  • Consider your legal and regulatory obligations and how new regulations coming into force in 2018 (GDPR and NDB) will impact your business.
  • Learn how companies can turn security into a brand asset that supports the growth of their businesses.

This workshop is suitable for:

  • C-level executives, founders and business owners who want to understand how cybercrime can impact their businesses and what they can do about it.
  • Company directors, investors and advisors who need to understand the risks of cybercrime and support their companies to put in place best-practice plans and procedures.
  • Non-technical team members who need to understand the threats that cybercrime can pose to individuals and businesses, and the importance of educating teams about what to look out for, and planning to mitigate the risks
